Selectmen's Report 



SCHOOLS AND SCHOOL -HOUSES. 

The School Committee have given the following estimate 
for the ensuing year : Schools, $ 9500 ; for repairs on school- 
houses, |600. 

SEEVICES OF TOWN 0FFI0EES. 

An appropriation of $1800 ought to be sufficient for the 
present year. 

FIEE DEPARTMENT. 

The Board of Engineers have made a full report, and ask 
for $1300 for running expenses, and have inserted an article 
in the warrant for a new Engine-house. 

HIGHWAYS AND BKIDGES. 

The Superintendent of Roads has made a full report, 
which will be found elswhere, to which we call your atten- 
tion. He asks for Highways $6000 ; sidewalks, $500. 

DECOEATION DAT. 

The Committee on Decoration Day have asked that this 
appropriation be increased to $175. 

TOWN HOUSE. 
The current expenses will require an appropriation of $500. 

STATE AID. 

We think an appropriation of $1550 will be ample for the 
present year. 



34 



HAY SCALES. 
The sum of $50 will be all that is required for this ap- 
propriation. 

ABATEMENT OF TAXES. 
It is necessary for us to provide for errors in the assess- 
ment ; we would recommend the sum of $300 for this 
purpose. 

DISCOUNT ON TAXES. 
If the discount is allowed as the past year, it will be nec- 
essary to appropriate $1500 for this purpose. 

STATE AND COUNTY TAX. 
We can only estimate the amount that will be required 
for the State and County Tax ; we would recommend $3800 
for County and $3500 for State Tax. 

INTEEEST. 

We should say that $1500 would be sufficient for this 
appropriation. 

PRINTING AND STATIONERY. 
The sum of $600 will have to be appropriated for this 
purpose, as the bill for the new Valuation Book has not 
been paid. 

LIABILITIES AND ASSETS. 
We refer you to the Treasurer's Account for all matters 
in this department. 

TOWN DEBT. 
The Town holds the Memorial Hall Fund of $20000, and 
Proprietor's Fund of $1600. 

MISCELLANEOUS. 
An appropriation of $700 will be ample for this purpose.

Report of Overseers of the Poor. 



The present year has brought with it no material changes 
at the Almshouse. It is generally known that the welfare 
of the inmates, their needs, and everything connected with 
them, is well looked after and cared for by those in charge. 

During the year four of the inmates have died, each being 
over seventy years of age. We have admitted twelve, and 
now have thirty-eight to be supported, and there are a 
number of others who are helped outside, but who will have 
to be taken into the house the present year ; but although the 
number is larger than ever before, we think the appro- 
priation of $4000 will be ample for all purposes. 

There are some necessary repairs to be made in the base- 
ment of the house, which, if done, will necessitate an appro- 
priation of some $500 for that purpose. 

Our expenses for relief outside have been as large as usual, 
and for the insane much larger, and will be the present year, 
as we have more insane at the asylum than ever before. 
$3000 should be appropriated for this department. • 

Since the passage of the tramp law last year we have been 
relieved, in a great measure, from that nuisance ; and instead 
of fourteen hundred and thirty, the number last year, we have 
had but three hundred and seventy-six the present year.

Report of the Chief Engineer 



OF THE 



Fire Department. 



To the Board of Selectmen : 

Gentlemen, — In accordance with the Regulations of the 
Fire Department, I submit the following Report. 

The force of the department consists of five Engineers, 
fourteen members of the Steamer Company, and forty mem- 
bers of the Shawshin Company at Ballard Yale. 

The apparatus is in good order, and consists of one third- 
class single steamer engine, and one hand-engine, each with 
a hose-carriage connected : also a four-wheeled horse hose- 
carriage, carrying 1000 feet of hose. 

We have ladders, hooks, and ropes at each engine-house, 
also 2500 feet of hose. 

There have been twelve alarms of fire during the past 
year, but the damage to property has been small. 

April , an alarm was rung at 8 P.M. The fire was the 
burning of brush on the grounds of Abbott Academy. 

April 13, an alarm was rung at 9.55 P.M. The building 
burned was a Smoke-house owned by W. D. Stark, and was 
used for smoking hams. Loss on building and contents, $50. 

May 9, alarm given at 12 M. Fire in woods at Frye 
Village. 

May 17, fire in woods belonging to Laura Manning. 

May 26, fire at Smith and Dove's Factory. Damage slight. 

May 27, alarm given at 3 P.M. Fire at Boston and Maine 
R.R. bridge on Main Street. 



46 

June 22, fire in woods in Spring Grove Cemetery. 

June 26, alarm given at 8.30 A.M. Fire in bouse belong- 
ing to Jerry Leary, on Pike Street. Damage slight. 

September 13, alarm given at 12.15 P.M. Fire in house 
belonging to Mrs. Dwaine, on Pike Street. Damage slight. 

October 7, fire in woods belonging to G. W. Simmons, at 
Ballard Yale. 

October 14, fire in woods belonging to Mrs. Willard Jones. 

October 14, fire in woods belonging to G. W. Simmons. 

The long-felt need of a new engine-house, for the sufficient 
accomodation of all apparatus belonging to the Steamer 
Company, has prompted your Board of Engineers to cause 
an Article to be placed in the Town Warrant, believing that 
the time has arrived when such a building should be erected. 

I would recommend that $1300 be appropriated for the 
running expenses of the Fire Department for the ensuing 
year.

Report of Cemetery Committee. 



The Cemetery Committee herewith submit their Annual 
Report, together with the receipts and expenditures, for the 
year ending February 7, 1881. 

Mr. Richard A. Hale, an assistant in the office of the Essex 
Company at Lawrence, and a competent civil engineer, has 
surveyed and made a plan of the entire premises, and laid 
out a plan with two hundred additional lots shown, also a 
list of the lots, dimensions, locations, and areas. The Com- 
mittee have procured from Messrs. Davis and Furber forty- 
four avenue signs for the different paths and avenues, and 
from Messrs. Briggs and Allyn of Lawrence oak pegs for 
staking out and numbering the lots. The laying out of the 
lots will be completed early in the Spring. Work has been 
continued on the grounds, especially in lifting a large quan- 
tity of stones which will hereafter be required for the uses of 
the Cemetery. 

The limited appropriation of last year was insufficient to 
accomplish as much as is desirable. The amount received 
by the Town the past year for lots it will be seen is $130. 
The survey and plans with new lots will soon be completed, 
and payment required for them, in addition to the expenses 
of necessary work and improvements still needed. The

Eighth Annual Report 



OF THE 



Trustees of the Memorial Hall 



The Trustees are happy to be able to report all the prop- 
erty in their charge, building, library, furniture, etc., in 
good condition. A safe, for which an appropriation was 
made at the last annual meeting of the Town, has been 
purchased, and placed in the lower left-hand room of Memo- 
rial Hall, where it supplies a much felt need, and contributes 
to a sense of security on the part of the Trustees as custodians 
of the ancient records of the Town. 

The only matter of unusual interest in the affairs of the 
Library to be reported this year is, the preparation of a new 
supplement. This supplement, incorporating the first sup- 
plement, will include all the books added to the Library 
since the publication of the original catalogue. It will be 
uniform in style with this ; and those who do not possess a 
catalogue can, by leaving word with the Librarian, procure 
a copy of it and the new supplement bound in one volume. 
For the preparation of the new work the Trustees have for- 
tunately been able to secure the services of Miss Bean, who 
also prepared the catalogue and first supplement, and whose 
engagement is a guarantee for careful and accurate work. 
It will probably be finished and in the hands of the Librarian 
within a few weeks. 

The Trustees would call special attention to the fact that 
a full alphabetical list of all the books added to the Library 
within the year past, with alcove and shelf numbers attached, 



58 

is given in the Librarian's report. This annual list will 
henceforth appear regularly as part of the Librarian's report ; 
and it will be a matter of importance for all borrowers from 
the Library to carefully preserve the annual Town Reports, 
beginning with the year 1882. They will thus have by them 
a complete catalogue of the Library up to the beginning of 
each current year. Another supplement will not, in all 
probability, be published before the year 1890. 

The Museum of Natural History, to which reference was 
made in our last report, has received during the year a num- 
ber of valuable donations, which are specified, in connection 
with the names of the donors, in the Librarian's report. 

In addition to these, this department has received from the 
constant patron of the Library, Mr. John Smith, the sum of 
$100 as the beginning of a fund to defray incidental expenses. 
No general effort has yet been made to increase this fund ; 
but from the interest already manifested, there is good reason 
to anticipate that it will soon reach a sum, the income of 
which will be sufficient to meet the ordinary calls of this 
department.
